Nice filesystems you've got there. Shame if something were to happen to them.

Finished ripping:

10033 songs (find . -name *.flac | wc -l)
1002 albums (find * -mindepth 1 -maxdepth 1 -type d)
27.5 days (find . -name *.flac -print0 | xargs soxi -D)
227.2 GiB (du -sh .)

Kind of amazed that I'm so close to the numbers @timbray posted at tbray.org/ongoing/When/200x/20 (well over a decade ago, which is when I first considered+started a full library rip 😬).

It took the better part of twelve hours, including two apk extractions/sideloads, but my new phone is finally working like my old one. (How did Swype lose so completely to Gboard?!)

Having "mild" COVID is less fun than people make it out to be.

Do I know anyone (*cough* @GeoffWozniak *cough*) who'd be interested in, or know someone interested in, any of the volumes below? The book without a visible title is the 1997 Canadian Global Almanac; the rest are about computer languages, software, theory, and methodologies.

Redactle #44 

I don't always post my Redactle results, but when I do they look like this. (Could even have had fewer guesses and better accuracy if I'd trusted my gut.)

I solved today's Redactle (#44) in 6 guesses with an accuracy of 83.33%. Played at redactle.com/

Apparently I'm much better than average at Redactle. Not sure if that's good or bad. 

I solved today's Redactle (#22) in 52 guesses with an accuracy of 63.46%. Played at redactle.com/

Fighting with an otherwise-promising-looking IndieWeb feed reader/[micro]blogging platform that's almost diametrically opposed to twelve-factor app principles.

If you can see this my Mastodon instance is running (again, after an XFS disaster).

Me: «writes a long note explaining exactly how to test a bug fix»
Me, later: «spends an hour on the phone with QA explaining how to copy files in Explorer»

A dumb second-last guess.

It perpetuates a negative stereotype (two of my favourite people perform as sweet red-nose "Pochinko" clowns) but in this case I'll allow it.
